WHERE IT ALL BEGAN...
It all started back in 2016, when Co-Founder of Coinstop Johnathan Ross, tried to purchase a hardware wallet for his cryptocurrency. After scouring the internet for hours, he discovered that acquiring one in Australia was not so easy. The only option was to order from Europe, meaning the wait time would be way too long. That posed the question: were other people having trouble trying to purchase a hardware wallet in Australia as well? That’s when the idea of Coinstop came to fruition!
Jonathan bought lifelong friends Chris, Tim, Alex, Luke, and Dave on, and together they ordered Coinstop’s first box of hardware wallets. And as they say, the rest is history.
Coinstop has established itself as Australia’s leading and most trusted cryptocurrency hardware wallet provider, shipping the world’s best crypto storage solutions across the country.
It’s very easy to say we achieved the position we hold today simply because we’ve been doing it the longest of all the hardware wallet providers in Australia, and while that is true in some regard, it’s not the reason why we continue to be the leading hardware wallet provider in Australia.
It’s because nobody does it quite like we do!
We can guarantee that no other Australian based hardware wallet providers are as actively involved in the blockchain community as the Coinstop team are. Members of the Coinstop team are available all day to answer questions, and even after hours at local blockchain and cryptocurrency meetups. Coinstop also works deep within the privacy space, forming part of the teams at Loki, Session, Lokinet and Australia's first privacy focused Non For Profit charity, LAG Foundation.
Coinstop doesn’t shy away from larger gatherings either. We were a major sponsor of the Blockchain Centre’s Block Party One event, a blockchain and cryptocurrency super week. This event attracted almost 1000 attendees throughout the five day event. Furthermore, Coinstop has assisted event’s at the Blockchain Centre including a Jonas Schnelli (Bitcoin Core developer) talk, and Blockchain Day at Intersekt, Australia’s Largest FinTech Festival.
EDUCATING THE MASSES...
When any new industry and technology springs up, there’s always a need to promote good practice through education. Coinstop believes blockchain technology is going to change the world in ways not seen since the invention of the internet! But for cryptocurrency and the blockchain technology it is built on to reach these levels, the everyday individual must be able to use the technology. That’s why we are dedicated to educating the community. We offer one-on-one in depth consultations to anyone wanting to learn more about Bitcoin, Blockchain, Security, Privacy & more.
